71. Fire Characteristics of Steel Members Coated with Nano-Enhanced Polymers
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/1/2014
Authors: Kathryn M Butler, Alexander H.-D. Cheng, Christopher Mullen, Ahmed Al-Ostaz
Abstract: Applying a polymeric coating on steel members has been demonstrated to be an effective countermeasure for the threat of blast on building and other structures. The development of a blast-resistant coating for steel with good characteristics in a fire ...

72. Ultrafine particle removal and ozone generation by in-duct electrostatic precipitators
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/27/2014
Authors: Dustin G Poppendieck, Dong H. Rim, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In-duct electrostatic air filters (ESP) have been shown to be an effective particulate control device for reducing UFP concentrations (20 nm - 100 nm) in buildings, although they have the potential to increase indoor ozone concentrations due to coron ...

74. A Graphical Approach to Evaluating High-Performing Buildings:Indoor Air Quality, Energy, Water, and Waste
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/20/2014
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In this paper, we describe and demonstrate a graphical approach to illustrating the performance of high-performing buildings. Our approach enables building designers, owners, operators, and occupants to evaluate the performance of a building as desig ...

75. IAQ 2013 Tools Topic Overview
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/20/2014
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Larry Schoen
Abstract: The complex relationships between indoor and outdoor environmental conditions, coupled with the impacts of climate change, make it more important than ever before that buildings be comfortable and healthy for the occupants yet also energy efficient. ...

76. Environmental Health in Low Energy Buildings Topic Overview
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/11/2014
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Hal Levin
Abstract: Besides providing thermal comfort and acceptable indoor environmental quality (IEQ), the designers of buildings and other enclosed spaces are increasingly challenged to provide a healthy environment in an energy efficient manner. Increasing pressure ...

77. The IAQ and Energy Impacts of Reducing Formaldehyde Emissions in Commercial Building
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/11/2014
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich, Kevin Yale Teichman
Abstract: Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems in buildings are designed to provide thermally comfortable conditions and to maintain acceptable indoor air quality (IAQ). At the same time, the operating costs of HVAC systems are often a la ...

78. Development of Standard Reference Materials for Cement-Based Materials
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/6/2014
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Nicos Martys, William L George
Abstract: Rotational rheometers are routinely used for homogeneous materials, but their usage for characterization of a granular fluid like concrete is a relatively new phenomenon. As measurements with rheometers can involve flow in a complex geometry, it is ...

79. Nondestructive Testing (NDT) and Sensor Technology for Service Life Modeling of New and Existing Concrete Structures
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7974
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 12/18/2013
Authors: Kenneth Alan Snyder, Li Piin Sung, Geraldine S Cheok
Abstract: Nondestructive test (NDT) methods and sensor technologies are evaluated in the context of providing input parameters to service life prediction models for reinforced concrete structures. Relevant NDT methods and sensors are identified that are based ...

80. Review of alternative cooling technologies
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 12/18/2013
Authors: S J Brown, Piotr A Domanski
Abstract: This paper considers the alternative cooling technologies studied by Fisher et al. (1994) and assesses their current performance and market potential in reference to vapor compression technology. First, a taxonomy of cooling technologies based on th ...
